Last night was BEAMS arts festival, which I posted about last year as well. It's a one-night only event, around Chippendale. I'm two down, two to go through my exams so I felt like I deserved a night off.

3x2: winter blues

All last week was sunny and go-without-a-jacket during the day, so I thought winter was on its way out; it's having one last say with the cold front this week, though. Not that I really want it to leave. It'll be fun to wear dresses and shorts for maybe a week, then I'll be starting my complaints about being too hot and sweaty.

  • Old Navy shirt / Jeans West jeans / Bass loafers for errands at the shopping centre.
  • Zara coat / Uniqlo shirt / Mango pants / Bass loafers for hospital.
  • Uniqlo sweatshirt / Mango pants / Bass saddle shoes for hospital. I need to wear my saddle shoes more often, I love them so much but for some reason I've been having trouble pairing them with outfits lately.
  • Zara coat / Muji dress / Dune boots for study group then dinner.
  • My mum's trench coat / H&M t-shirt / Uniqlo jeans / Dune boots for dinner. The t-shirt is definitely not getting as much wear as I planned. Probably my regret buy for the year.
  • Uniqlo shirt / Just Jeans jeans / Dune boots / Daniel Wellington watch* for dinner. Finally have a bra that kind of matches my skin tone and is less obvious under this silk shirt, which is basically sheer.

Old haunts and new discoveries

I've been trying to take my camera out and about with me more often, but all I really do in my leisure time is eat, so here are some unusually high quality shots of food I've eaten lately.

Pasta at Vapiano. I branched out and got something other than crema di funghi, the chicken pesto, which was good. But not as good as my favourite.

Grill'd burgers. Advertised as healthy burgers, and they definitely taste it. I felt like I was eating Subway. Let's be real, not what I really want when I want a burger.

Waffles at Choc Pot. They're really good, almost airy, not heavy and store-bought-tasting like other places. Better than it looks in this photograph.

YY's truffle pizza at Fratelli Fresh. I'd ordered the margherita and was left with serious food envy.

Ma La Tang at the Dixon House food court. You grab a bowl and a pair of tongs, get in line and self-serve your choice of noodles, vegetables and other things like fish cakes and tofu, give it to the cashier who charges you by weight and takes it to the back to have it cooked in spicy soup. It's pretty good, although I'm not too adventurous with toppings.

I'm not sure why we never go to Caffe Tiamo for our late night dessert/post-dinner snack hit. They have everything. Dessert.Cocktails. Haloumi fries. Free wifi. We'll be back.
